An 18-year-old girl, Evelyn Angese, who allegedly attempted to kidnap her employer, was yesterday brought before an Igbosere magistrate’s court in Lagos Island.
Angese, who was also accused of demanding a N5 million ransom before her boss could be left alone, is facing a five-count charge of conspiracy, attempted kidnap and threat to life preferred against her by the police.
The police prosecutor, Sergeant Tubi Olajide, told the court that the house help, together with others at large, threatened to kidnap and kill one Mrs. Uche Onwuka and her children without any reasonable cause.
According to Olajide, the accused allegedly committed the offence on August 22, 2016 at 32a Balogun Street in Lagos Island.
Angese, however, denied committing the offence. The presiding magistrate, O.M. Ajayi, then admitted her to bail in the sum of N500, 000 with two sureties in like sum.
The case was adjourned till March 1, 2017.
